I’ve been waiting (not so patiently) to share Clara’s mini nursery makeover on the blog… and today is the day!
I technically could have shared this post over a month ago, but I really wanted to wait until after she was born because, as you’ll see by many of the photos below, we have her name on the wall and her initials in 2 places — and I wanted to include those in the pictures without “spilling the beans” before she was actually born!
I’m very pleased with how this room turned out — especially since it took minimal time and energy on my part AND I only had to purchase 2 things:
- the pink rug (seriously, the softest rug ever — from RugsUSA.com)
- the hoops for the doilies on the collage wall — from a local craft store
Everything else was repurposed from something I already had in the house or it’s something I borrowed from a friend or relative. Even all the clothes and girly blankets were gifts or hand-me-downs!
Here’s the full tour!
Walking into the room from the little hallway between our master bedroom and the nursery — looking at the changing table area.
A better view of the changing table area and the collage wall.
Each of these doilies and pieces of handiwork were done by one of Dave or my grandmas, great-grandmas, great-great-grandmas, great-aunts, etc. They all have a story and I just love how the collage turned out!
Looking towards the crib area from the doorway. The crib, table, chair, and all the bedding is exactly the same as the other 3 kids… however, I borrowed a rock ‘n play this time around, and we’ve already gotten LOTS of use out of it!
The mobile is the same hoops I used for the boy’s mobile, I just took the wooden tools off and tied leftover pink fabric from dying the pink fabric for Nora’s bedroom. Nothing special, but it was free, it took about 5 minutes to make, and it adds a punch of color to that part of the bedroom.
Another view of the crib and chair area — standing by the changing table.
Rotating around to the closet area.
The oval picture above the chair is my Grandma as a baby.
A peek inside her closet — so many cute clothes (ALL given to us to borrow or pass on to someone else!)
Standing by the crib, looking back towards the closet and the door to the hallway.
So that’s the full tour of the smallest bedroom in our house!
It’s the perfect size for a cute little nursery, and super convenient considering it’s right down the hall from our master bedroom!
